Response 8 I started during my first year teaching here in general, it was all very overwhelming. Perhaps to stagger, face-to-face first, and then online.
Response 9 A cohort.
Response 10 Had a workshop on the logic of online teaching versus classroom teaching. It took me a long time to make that transition and hence took me a long time before I got a class up online because I had to make that intellectual shift first before things got rolling. Not a "how" workshop but more of an understanding of the logic of online teaching.
